“Far away from 5 star hotel”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

The hotel is located in a sparsely populated area of Beijing so many taxi drivers do not know how to get it there. Benefit is to be located near the metro station.
Hotel at a glance it looks very good. Large and spacious lobby. As for the room, and at first glance it looks very good. Big comfy bed with a view of a flat TV, a desk and a private bath with shower and tub. And that's where the story ends. Shower did not work, bathroom was quite dirty, with hair on the floor, dirt in corners, dirty carpet. Although the room has a terrace it is impossible to get to it because it is locked?! The windows do not open.
All in all, far from the 5 star hotels.

This hotel was chosen for us by Nexus Holiday as we booked a tour with them. The hotel room is fine with nice bath with separate tub and shower. The niceities end there. Supposedly you can adjust the temperature in the room, but that is not true. I am in this room for 2nd night and the temp is 26 C or 82 F which is unacceptable for sleeping and getting ready in the morning. I called and they said air conditioning is broken, however it does seem that the lobby is cool. We cannot open windows in the room. They finally brought tubs of ice, so I can put my feet in ice and also a large bag of ice which they told me I should hug to my chest. In addition there is no hot water in the shower, but that was ok because I wanted to take a cold shower to cool me off anyway. However that leads me to believe that they turn off the hot water and air conditioning during the night so they can save a few pennies. There have been other issues with Nexus Holidays in that we were first sent to the wrong hotel and had to take an hour long cab ride to this hotel. Food in restaurant is adequate, although expensive by Chinese standards.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with window that will open so that you will not be Peking Duck roasted duri...

stayed here for my first time in Beijing, this is a rather large hotel but service was pretty good. However the shower did not drain well and the water came up over the door lip and got the whole bathroom floor wet.

Room Tip: got a nice corner room, with lots of windows
